Texture paste for a resist effect – Jowilna’s 101

I love resist techniques in all kinds of forms – the stunning effect never seems to get old. So this time around I used my Anna Griffin Gloss Finish Texture Paste to create a fun resist effect.

 

  • Step 1

    You will need a stencil, your gloss paste, a palette knife and a piece of paper preferably patterned to create the resist on. I used a sheet of old book paper.

  • Step 2

    Apply a layer of paste through the stencil and leave to dry completely.

  • Step 3

    Once the paste is dry, I used my All Purpose Inks to add colour to the background and to show the resist. Lightly mist your paper with water, then add small drops of API with a pipette onto the water and watch as the ink spreads and moves around the resisted areas.

  • Step 4

    Add 2 more colours for a bright and beautiful effect. Some colours will work better than others.

  • Step 5

    On this piece of old book paper with the image printed on, I used the same stencil and Anna Griffin Gloss Texture Paste, then added API and then also blended some other colour inks on top. I quite like how the effect turned out, something totally random but I can see myself turning this piece of art into something else as well.

So happy accidents and intentional techniques are always a fun combination. And this resist effect is going to be a firm favourite for many years to come.

Why not try this for yourself!
